The property

16 Wakeling Island, Silverlake is a stunning, detached home with lakeside views in the beautiful Silverlake Estate in Dorset.

This family-friendly property is ideal for those seeking to explore the wonders of the area and offers a range of on-site facilities, including access to a shared gym and swimming pool, making it a wonderful base for group breaks.

Park up and make your way indoors, with a stylish, open-plan living space greeting you, where you can prepare meals in the fully-equipped kitchen, that includes a dishwasher, a washer/dryer and a wine chiller, a dedicated dining area for eight guests, and an inviting sitting area, with a corner sofa to sink into.

Light the woodburning stove on cooler evenings, or if the sun is shining, throw open the bi-fold doors and retreat to the decked area, a haven for alfresco dining, or a BBQ, with breath-taking views of the lake on offer; if you’re feeling confident, take advantage of the canal access, leading into the nearby lake, where you can hire kayaks, paddleboards and even bicycles.

Four bedrooms await upstairs; two king-size bedrooms with TVs and en-suite shower rooms, and two bunk bedrooms, suitable for both children and adults.

Additional facilities are provided with a main bathroom and a downstairs cloakroom for convenience.

Silverlake Dorset is a 650 acre private estate and nature reserve that is dissected with interesting wild walks where you could encounter free roaming horses, deer, rabbits, hares, otters and a variety of other animals.

Take advantage of the on-site gym, swimming pool, and tennis courts for a day of fun.

Bird watchers will also not be disappointed with squadrons of overflying geese and starlings.

Silverlake is surrounded by some amazing gastro pubs within an easy drive or more adventurous walk.

For a day at the beach, you can chose from the quiet and little known Ringstead beach and walk the south western coastal path east towards Lullworth Cove and Durdle Door or west towards Ossmington with its picturesque and very popular Smugglers Inn pub.

Or visit the idyllic seaside town of Weymouth, boasting a spectacular beach, some amazing quay side restaurants and bars and a range of activities for all ages.

Whether you’re looking for a peaceful escape or a more active holiday, 16 Wakeling Island, Silverlake has it all.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

About the location


Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England, or visit the County Museum which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!
